Song NAKED EYE

Band  LUSCIOUS JACKSON

  

It’s not a choice I tried to make
It’s not a thought I couldn’t take
Something told me it was time
To give you yours and leave me mine

My vision started to be clear
I watched the sunlight coming near
I knew the day I knew the night
I knew I could regain my sight

And it feels alright
And it feels alright

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all, I could see

Last night I came into your home
To break some ice and throw some stones
I asked if we could be alone
I had some troubles of my own

Knew I had to say goodbye
To all the old things held inside
If I let the moment fly
I knew they’d all be magnified
And it feels alright
And it feels alright
 

 

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

Came around after dark
You are nothing but a lark
Know I snuck in like a narc
I knew I had to leave my mark

Wanted to be satisfied
I tried to be dignified
Wearing nothing is divine
Naked is a state of mind
And it feels alright
And it feels alright
 

 

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

With my naked eye
I saw all the falling rain
Coming down on me
With my naked eye
I saw all if I said it all
I could see

It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright, it feels alright
It feels alright


POEM

A disgraceful sort of fella
He was a disgraceful sort of fella
egged people on

stood back with a baton

asked them to wait

while he ate

never lifted a finger…

walked away

because he had feet of clay –

and so it ends as it began

while he spends time getting a tan…

He was a disgraceful sort of fella.
